Been a long time since I rock and rolled

So, yeah.. Been a bit since I last posted.


May 19 was derwyth and my 15th anniversary. Because of some stuff at work, he was actually home on a Thursday night, so we went out to dinner at Travinia's. Very good Italian! It probably at the same price point as Olive Garden, but much better recipes.

Merger stuff at work continues apace. As things get closer, we're all much more stressed out, as can be expected. Next week I go to teller side training. We have hired 2 PT employees, but they probably won't be ready to run a drawer until after the conversion date, so I get to run a drawer until they are up and running. They are finally installing an ATM at our branch, but it will not be running until after the 18th... We also have a million freaking webinars and online classes we have to finish in the next 2 weeks. *sigh*

Let's see.. In other news, we're starting to look for a house. Den is sick of the apartment, and I can't really blame him anymore. The damn handyman cannot seem to get the plumbing over the cabinets fixed correctly, and the lack of insulation makes this place a nightmare to heat and cool. With the heat up over 90 last week (IN MAY!!!!) we finally broke down and turned on the AC, but only have it set at 75-80.... We are in the process of getting pre-approved for a mortgage, and found out that most of Pickens County is considered "rural", so we can get a low rate USDA mortgage on a house. And since we are first time buyers, there are a bunch of programs we qualify for to help with closing costs etc. Now to find a nice place in our price range.

Went to go see Pirates 4 over Memorial Day weekend. It wasn't too bad, but I certainly hope they make another one, because it really wasn't the film to end the franchise on.....

Still prepping for the WDW trip in October. I think we have 125 days left. I can't wait to go see the Halloween Parade and the the new upgrades they have done to the Haunted Mansion and, believe it or not, Star Tours.

Spent last night at fibergeek's celebrating the little man's 1st birthday. She made the cutest Lego block cakes, though he did not understand the whole "make a mess with your little cake" thing. He is a cutie though! I had to laugh though. You could tell this was a Scadian child, as *EVERYONE* got him books for his birthday. LOL! I had found kits for soft, cloth books, and sewed up the Teddy Bear Pirate book, and a Jungle animals book. Really cute. We also spent the last hour or so, flipping through some Wonder Woman graphic novels to give user some ideas for the Halloween party. Outside the big 3 female DC characters (WW, Batgirl and Supergirl) it's kind of hard to come up with a women's costume if you are not a real hardcore DC fan. Luckily, since I was a Batman Animated fan in college (and Den was playing Arkham Asylum) Harley jumped to mind pretty quickly....

Not much else going on currently. Hopefully we'll get out of the merger morass soon, and things will smooth out. Once we get everyone trained and schedules worked out, I think we'll be o.k... (fingers crossed!!)

imho - the Pirate movies have already gone too far. The second was really pushing for gags. The third should have closed it, but, hey.

Where are you looking for a house? One with extra bedroom? (Just kidding)

Well 4 was better than 2 & 3, but not as good as 1.
We're looking around Pickens and Liberty. We can get a bit more house there for the money. Hopefully a 3br 2ba.
